My thanks to AskDifferent for sponsoring this week’s DF RSS feed. AskDifferent is a question and answer site for any and all Apple tech support questions, built using the amazing Stack Overflow engine. What these guys have done with Stack Overflow — and its sibling sites — is nothing short of amazing. Smart discussions, high signal-to-noise, and a community that really works. And to top it off they use Markdown.

With community voting, tags, and Wikipedia-style editing, AskDifferent always has great answers, and the best answers get voted to the top. They’re pursuing excellence, accuracy, and relevance, not “hits”. There’s no better site on the web for Apple-related tech problems and questions.
